Happy Belated Anniversary to us!

On May 30th Seth and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary :) With everything that was going on with work and school, we just decided to spend the day doing what we love most! Which is swimming and spending time by the pool with family. One of these anniversaries we will do something extra special and extravagant, but for now-I am just fine soaking up some sun, listening to music, and grilling out!

Not the best pic, but at least it shows off Seth's newest hairstyle. Tsk tsk tsk. I'm not a huge fan, but whatever! haha.

The day was seriously spent eating, swimming, and relaxing, and we wouldn't have had it any other way! Seth and I are so lucky to have such an amazing little family, and to think it all started just by our meeting at the Flying Saucer oh about 9 years ago where I waited on Seth and assisted him with his beverages of choice. haha. So thank you Flying Saucer for bringing the most special man into my life! And a very happy 3rd anniversary to us!

Busy Busy Summer

I thought when school ended, and the summer started, I would have plenty of time to spend in the pool and relax ! Ha! I don't know what I was thinking....We have been busier than ever, and the summer is slipping away faster than I can believe! School ended, and full time work at the shelter started, Elem is still in school 5 days a week and doing wonderfully in his class, and Seth has made a few work trips out of town already! And I started a Zero Base job as a PCT on Hem/Onc at Children's Hospital, which I LOVE! But throw in field trips, snack days and water play days at Elem's school, a few colds here and there, training for the new job, lots of birthday parties, snow cones, fireworks, father's day, losing my camera on our "stay-cation", boat trips to the lake, swimming at grammy and poppas, our anniversary, swimming lessons with friends, and a couple of movie nights, and you can see how my days are filling up so quickly! It is all worth it to spend more time with my family, but I am smooth worn out and cant seem to get caught up on sleep. Oh summer why must you go so quickly??!!! Elem is having a blast and is soaking up the sun like a mad man! haha. Seth and I are quite jealous of the tan he is acquiring with his SPF 50 and what not. And he is proving to love being outdoors despite the heat just like his mommy and daddy. I think our favorite part of the summer so far is going to the lake with Uncle Dustin and Aunt Ali on their boat, and more specifically Elem driving the boat. He loves the entire trip, and falls asleep sitting up cruising every time. I am so thankful for my family and all the fun we are having this summer. Just wish I could freeze time for a couple of days to make it last a little longer-but I'd probably just spend my time sleeping -so I guess I ll take what I can get.

Oh Happy Summer Days-you are my favorite time of year!

Happy 30th Birthday Uncle Dustin!

Uncle Dustin finally turned the big 3-0 this year and Ali did not disappoint with the party! We had so much fun eating lots of good food, spending time with friends, and sliding down the giant bouncy slide-all in honor of our Uncle Dustin. :) The weather was perfect-well a little hot, but it was beautiful and the kids were great! We love you Dustin, thanks for being such a great Uncle. Hope your birthday was super special!!
